That seems dangerous...

IF your pads are half worn.. when you release them .. they just back off... With that clip.. there going to go back to 0.. When they need to only go back to 45 or something... That means you are going to have to press the pedal from 0 to 45 to 50% before you get any kind of friction started...

Yes. Some racing guys use them because it backs the pads off the rotor, but they got to pump the brakes ahead of time to stop, lol.

So they do work but they hurt your reaction time, and can be unsafe on high mileage pads.
